Camiña Balay nga Bato: Iloilo’s Great Treasure

Dinagyang’s Pompous Ati Tribe Competition

More than the revelry and pomp, Iloilo’s Dinagyang Festival focuses more on the religious aspect which is the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the replica of the image of Sto. Nino from Cebu. It also commemorates the arrival of the first Malay settlers in Panay […]

A Weekend Staycation at BSA Suites Makati

An urge to have a staycation before the onset of rainy season prompted me to book a room at BSA Suites Makati. It was not only near my work place, but more so it was nicely located near Makati’s CBD and shopping districts. The building’s […]

It seems that inflatable water parks are the craze lately. I first saw it on TV and it appeared to be super fun. Well, it not only seemed an enjoyable place to be, I think playing in a water park requires lots of energy and […]
